Put the 1st FC5 disc in. Choose Linux-rescue. You will be presented with 
harddrive options. Choose the one that has FC5 on it, and you will end up 
with a command prompt. Type. chroot /mnt/sysimage.  Now you can reinstall 
Grub on the Winblows drive. If Winblows is using hda, type. 
grub-install /dev/hda .  If all goes well, Grub should now be installed in 
the MBR of the Winblows drive. Reboot, and you should have Grubs menu back.
